Ivan is often sleeping on a cat tree when folks come to visit the Amarillo SPCA. He is not overly interactive and folks often pass him by. Ivan may not be for everyone because he probably won’t follow you around or jump on your lap for attention. But he’s a really cool fellow! Minds his own business, has good manners, uses his box, isn’t picky about food and enjoys napping. He doesn’t want a lot of petting and brushing, but a little bit is welcome and sometimes he will come to you for a few pets as well. If you are interested in an independent cat--read on!

Likes: Napping, Investigating, Looking out the window
Needs: May need a quiet home with no small children. He currently doesn’t like a lot of handling and is not really a snuggler. However, he may blossom into a social cat with the right family.

Breezy is an orange female kitten approx. 3 ½ months old. Born roughly June 11, 2023, Breezy and her sister Emma, are unusually colored “red dilute” tabby kittens. Breezy’s silky coat is a bit lighter in color than Emma’s and has shorter hair. “Red” (orange or ginger) female cats are only 1 in every 20 of that color, so two in a litter are rare. Dilute means they’re both much lighter than most similarly colored kittens, another rarity. They were found with their orange tabby mother under a house and taken into foster care until they were big enough to find forever homes. Breezy is a very sweet-natured, active kitten and likes to get her running around and play time done before curling up to cuddle. Breezy will eat about anything provided, wet or dry. Her favorite treat is Greek yogurt and she likes to chase crinkly balls, wand toys and wide ribbon.
